  • F3-2133C9Q-32GTX + Gigabyte 880GA-UD3H Rev2.1 + x6 1045T OC, Underclock 2133 to 1600?

    I am planning to purchase Trident X F3-2133C9Q-32GTX, a quad kit, and want to split it up into two pairs of 16Gb for two machines. In the future, I expect to use all 4 sticks on one machine, so I want to buy a set of 4 now rather than 2 matched pair. I want to run a pair on the AMD board down at 1600 and want to know the best manual settings. I know that I could buy a pair of Trident X 1600 @ CAS 7 and hope to get close to that. The x6 1045T is stable overclocked to roughly match a 1090T (3200Ghz). It was an end of production run 1045T and has no problem at this speed. FSB=240, NB=1920, HT=1920, Core boost enabled (auto) to 3840Ghz. Currently running a 4Gb pair of GBRL @ 6.66 multiplier for 1600. Voltage at 1.56. Settings are 9 9 9 27 2T, TwTr cmd 5T, Trfc 110, Write Recovery 10T, Precharge 5T, Row Cycle Time 40T, RAS to RAS delay 4T. In addition to the primary settings, I am concerned that the preloaded secondary values for the 2133 would be too far off for running at 1600. I donít know if my current secondary settings from GBRL would carry over.

    Set it to the same specifications as the 1600 C7 kit to see how it works. The motherboard can adjust secondary values based on primary so you don't need to worry about that.
    Are you an overclocker? Have screen shots of your OC results? Please post and share your OC experience!
